that could supersede current u.s. laws in some ways and impose mandatory limits on carbon emissions. president obama failed to get a cap-and-trade will pass in his first term. is he quietly planning a new carbon crackdown through other means? joining me now is lou dobbs, host of "lou dobbs tonight" on the fox business network. that was one agenda item he could not get through. cap and trade. even when the democrats controlled the house as well, they just couldn't get that through. what would he be doing through the united nations and he could do through the u.s. congress? lou: the efforts that he is undertaking here, so little is known about what we are discussing in qatar, at the meeting of the united nations we are talking about laying out a mission schedule through 2035. without any public discussion, there is nothing about it than a presidential debate, as you know. this could have a mammoth effect on this economy. we are talking about tax levels and also significant pressure on the gdp of this country, the growth rate. and some are saying, it would be a negative to drive the ec
signed by president clinton, it defines marriage as for federal law purposes as only the legal union of one man and one woman. now, the practical effect of that is that in the nine states that now grant or soon will grant same-sex couples the legal right to get married, those couples are legally married under state law, but the federal government doesn't recognize their marriage, which means that they can't get survivors' benefits, they don't get tax benefits, they don't get social security benefits. about 1,000 benefits in all that are the result of this federal law that's being challenged by several cases. and that's why you say there are at least eight of them, all of which say that the federal law is unconstitutional discrimination. and the challengers also say there's never been another case where congress says, well, we're not going to recognize a marriage that the state defines as legal. so i think that's the most likely thing that will happen today. but one of the cases that the justices will be talking about is the challenge to california's proposition 8. that's the voter-ap

for a vote in the senate yesterday and it failed, even though it was modeled on u.s. law, the americans with disabilities act, and that's in spite of it already being ratified by 126 other countries and in spite of the support of former republican senator bob dole who made this rare appearance on the senate floor in a wheelchair. senator's john mccain and john kerry made an emotional plea for the senate to work together. >> he's here because he wants to know that when a disabled american veteran, our wounded warriors travel overseas that they're treated with the same dignity and respect. >> to bob it's unthinkable that americans could not get over a curb or enter a school building or even watch a debate in this chamber if they were in a wheelchair. >> the treaty fell five republican votes short of 66 fleeded. opponents were worried the treaty would fringe on american sovereignty. harry reid will bring it up for a vote again in the next congress. ...and spend time on the slopes. take alka-seltzer plus cold & cough...

law in the new constitution. concerns about the protection of women's rights in this constitution. basically this is document written by the muslim brotherhood because all liberal members of this assembly walked out long ago, bill. bill: is there a chance that will diffuse the protests we have seen so far, steve? >> reporter: the hopes were on the president's side that this could diffuse the protests. this constitution would go to a referendum, be voted on and president morsi would give up his extraordinary powers. what we see is the reverse. it has inflamed the opposition. we could see one of the biggest protest demonstrations today we've seen so far, bill. bill: steve harrigan, thank you. we're waiting and watching for more developments out of cairo, egypt. we're coming after the moment where prayers end on a friday afternoon. so watch that story. martha: crowds in those streets. we'll keep an eye on it. we're just getting started on this friday morning, everybody. there is new information on the health of president george h.w. bush after he was admitted to the hospital. we have

and sterling professor of law at yale law school. and msnbc contributor, victoria defrancesco soto. great to have you all here. all right. if president obama wants to get anything done in his second term, democrats in the senate will have to overcome one major obstacle, the filibuster. since democrats took control of both chambers of congress in 2007, republicans have used the filibuster as a bludgeon against them to pass basic legislation. the senate bills that actually passed has dropped from just over 25% to a record low of 2.8% this year. the rate held steady at 10% through the clinton and bush years and then plummeted when democrats took control of congress in 2007. that is due in no small part to the filibuster. it's mutated to a routine impediment to legislative progress. it has turned congress into a body incapable of acting except in times of crises. it's just like the fiscal cliff right now. this was designed to force congress to deal with the deficit. now senate majority leader harry reid is proposing changes to the filibuster that might make senate lesseesy. right now senators

[ laughter ] >> plane ticket to vegas and then anything that happens in vegas -- >> build a nice doomsday bunker, who knows. [ laughter ] >> donate a bunch of it. i don't really need that kind of money, i guess. >> he may be the only one. >> shepard: if you have ever spent time here in new york, you probably heard the voice of lavonda. >> good evening, everyone from the new york lottery i'm lovonda. >> yes, i am yolanda. >> legend. she has advice for anybody looking to make it big. >> as soon as you get your ticket, when you buy your ticket. first ma
with disabilities that's based on a u.s. law signed by a republican president. find out how a republican attorney general plan to overcome the opposition. >> president obama pile on praise that sounds like anything but. a farewell for hillary clinton. i'm fighting a fiscal cough, so pardon that. if it's always darkest. it's clear the white house-re house-republican leaders, both sides appear to be very far apart, saluting kennedy center honorees from dustin hoffman to led zeppelin and hitting the golf links with former president bill clinton. the guy with whom he will have to make a deal to end the standoff on the fiscal cliff house speaker john boehner requested time on fox news to publicly declare the president's opening bid a nonstarter. >> i was flabbergasted. we're nowhere. >> treasury secretary tim geithner did the full ginsberg with taped appearances on all five shows. nothing will happen until budget tax rates and the ball is now in their court. >> the only thing that stands in the way of a deal right now is if a group of republican members decide there have been a block because they can'
was banned. one of his goals is to create a state ruled by islamic or sharia laws. the u.s. does not consider the muslim brotherhood a foreign terrorist organization. the egyptian government banned the muslim brotherhood because of its suspected role in the assassination plot of the president. bill: later this hour general jack keane is here to talk about the recent turmoil in egypt and claims morsi is a new kind of pharaoh for egypt. martha: twin car bombs in damascus, syria, the blast targeted an area known to be loyal to president bashar al-asaad. then people ran out to help those who were injured in that initial explosion and then came the second large explosion. according to the estimates. 40,000 syrians have died in all of this horrific violence in syria that has been going on now for two years. bill: we are just getting started. $2 and a dream. so many lining unto buy a ticket for one of the largest lottery jackpots we have ever seen. we'll take you to one town where folks to sure use a half billion prize. martha: ambassador susan rise expected on capitol hill. she faced a tough crowd
thing, protecting ourselves. you're violating the law of the world, and we're holding you. i understand not in my backyard problems, and i certainly understand that we're not going to be trying these folks under our civil system. >> sean: are we or aren't we, though? >> i don't know, sean. that's the problem. >> sean: we had promises in the past that appear to be broken. >> right. >> and a setup report that says, oh, yeah we can hold these -- >> sean: this goes back -- >> they play by their own rules, sean. that's the problem. legally speaking they're finding a way to get around it and circumvent the rules to make it work based on the promises that they made prior to the election. that's what this is. i'm not surprised. they said they wanted to do this, tried to back off it, because it's controversial and improper. why would you, given the prison population, put these people in to create more domestic terrorists? >> sean: i think i know the answer. it seems to be rooted in man-caused disaster, overseas contingency, fort hood is workplace violent, and can't label benghazi a terrorist att
is this was the first step forward in terms of trying to address the need for modernization in our visa laws. and we have a system of lottery that, frankly, i think, is properly replaced with a system that rewards those who want to come here to help create jobs and help get our economy back on track. so it's very much, i think, in sync with our priority of helping americans get back to work, helping create more jobs for more americans. >> democrats have now said after your response towards the thee house's proposal that ball is now in your court, that the onus is on you to put forth a proposal. is the ball in the republicans' court now? >> well, we remain committed at all -- at all instances to engage in discussions that are serious. i think that the proposal that was delivered here by secretary geithner to the speaker and me yesterday was not a serious proposal. we remain in discussions. i know the speaker as well as i do not want to see us go over the fiscal cliff, but feel very strongly we've got to get serious here. we don't want to increase tax rates. we're not going to increase tax rates. and
, then argue the law. if the law is against you, then argue the facts. if both are against you, just make it up. well, that's exactly what's happening. because to join is to keep faith with the men and women who have suffered disability in defense of our nation and we owe them nothing less. this treaty is not about changing america. it's about america changing the world. this vote is to test whether the senate will stand up for those who cannot see or hear and whether senators can hear the truth and see the facts. >> these are the facts. the treaty ensures equal opportunity for disabled adults and kids around the world. it's supported by every major veterans and disability group in america. 152 countries have already ratified the treaty including china and russia. the treaty is modelled after existing u.s. law. former senator bob dole is 89 years old. he just got out of the hospital yesterday. and today he came to the senate floor in a wheelchair to support the treaty. eight republicans and two independents voted for the treaty including john mccain. but it wasn't enough. the treaty failed 61-3
really heavy lifting jobs. it's different if you're working in a law firm and they keep you around for a few more years rather than you're driving a semi ray cross the country on route 70 or 80 all night long. you may not want a guy 730 years o -- 70 years old or a woman driving that truck. i really think you have to find something not -- i think the word hardship, not handicap, whether it be a hardship type role that are recognized as such where you get to retire sooner. i think we can deal with that over time but it takes more finesse. >> george will in his column today writes this, with a chip on his shoulder larger than -- >> i think will has a chip on his shoulder. >> -- barack obama is approaching his second term by replicating the m is stake of his first. now he seeks another surge of statism enlarging the portion of gross domestic product grasped by government and dispensed by politics. i guess that's how he describes keeping middle class tax cuts but while this may cause apoplexy among some republicans, isn't it time they realize that a majority of people voted for governm
immediate effects. american law will not be triggered to cut off aid to the palestinians, for instance. so there is an opportunity to pivot from this. interestingly, in the past several weeks, the u.s. and israel have become very close under diplomatic strategies. the gaza conflict may have forced an acceleration of that. certainly leading into this vote as well. now there's an opportunity to capitalize on this new political connection. president obama, president abbas, prime minister netanyahu are all in stronger positions and they will be after today for their domestic audiences to recognize the potential for some types of sacrifices in the days ahead. that's really where we need to go is to how to get a process started again that sees compromises and commitments. >> do you agree with that, rula? do you agree this will give a boost to the palestinian authority, mahmoud abbas? >> it will. not because of the united states', you know, help. actually, united states is voting against it. and -- >> in a voting bloc with israel. >> in bloc with israel undermining their own interest. these are t
it at the 2010 health law, affordable care act. that is a massive cost weight on the american people. it is a deeply unpopular issue. still it was relatively ignored during the election but it's still an active issue. and we have to provide assurance. americans have told us. they told us in the exit polling, they've told us in a number of other forms that they do not want to see burdens increased on our small businesses. >> mcconnell didn't mention that. i mean, that's a different thing. hadley, let me go to you on this. mcdonnell mentioned -- i'm going to read this from the "wall street journal." higher medicare premiums for the wealthy, an increase in the medicare eligibility age, retirement age and slowing of c colas. he said that's their position. isn't it time for them to come out with that boehner-mcconnell, here it is here's what we want right now? >> from a strategy standpoint i think the republicans should put some counter offer on the table. but i think they tend to lose sight of the forest for the trees when we start to talk about the aspects of this deal, that deal, the o
's prohibited by law and medicare. if we had prescription price drug negotiation in medicare as we do in the va, we could save a couple $100 billion. there are things like that we could do that we should do and i would think and hope that republicans would support us on that would save the taxpayer money and save the medicare beneficiary person money by making a better, fairer pricing system and we would extend the solvency of medicare. so, a lot of things we need to do to bring down health care costs, not just to medicare, but in the overall system. >> there was apparently laughter in the room from senator mitch mcconnell when the president's initial proposal was presented. do you think that president obama started these negotiated on the wrong foot with that $1.6 trillion offer? >> no. you know, i actually think senator mcconnell is being pretty "redridiculous to laugh. the laugh is really just a way to try to ridicule the seriousness of the negotiation that senator mcconnell plays a major role in. in a normal negotiation. you go in and buy a car, you're going to low ball your first offer and
you're going to to on the tax side. that's simple. you have to pass a law that says the present law has to be overridden. the argument is whether it's overridden for people over 250,000. >> and what would be your position on that? >> oh, i think the simple thing to do, obviously do what the president is saying. he ran a campaign on it. if you have to act in three weeks, you're not going to revise the whole income tax code in the next three weeks. all this business about deductions may be perfectly legitimate and i think that both income tax -- personal income tax and corporate income tax need a lot of thought and a lot of revision. they're both broken. but you're not going to do that in three weeks. the challenge that i see is in three weeks you've got to have some convincing balance of the tax side, the revenue side, with the expenditure side. you can't change the expenditures in three weeks. you can indicate intentions, but you can't -- >> we'll have more of that conversation throughout the show including interesting comments he has about bernanke and interest rates and what's goi
you go. >> the senate has already passed a law like this. democrats in the house are ready to pass a law like this. i hope republicans in the house come on board too. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. we should at least do what we agree on. and that's to keep middle class taxes low. and i'll bring everyone in to sign it right away so we can give folks some certainty before the holiday season. >> the white house point of view and which they feel is reflected in representative cole's position there is that it is very clear that they're in the going to -- neither side is going to let taxes go up on all americans. and so why not just cut a deal on letting those tax cuts be locked in for lower income americans and work out what they're going to do about the upper income americans. house republicans say, come on, you know where we stand on this, we're not going to change overnight because you won re-election, mr. president. we need to negotiate on some of the other big issues before anybody discusses those top tax rates. >> i know you s
, congress can pass a law that would prevent a tax hike, the first $250,000 of everybody's income. everybody -- that means that 98% of america and 97% of small businesses would not see their taxes go up by a single dime. 98% of americans, a 97% of small businesses would not see their income taxes increased. even the wealthiest americans would still get a tax cut, the first $250,000 of their income. it is not like folks who make more than that are not getting a tax break -- they are getting a tax break on the first $250,000 like everybody else. families and small businesses will be able to enjoy some peace of mind heading into christmas and the new year. it will give us more time next year to work together on a comprehensive plan to bring down our deficits, streamline our tax system, and do it in a balanced way. including asking the wealthiest americans to pay a little more so we can still invest in things like education and training in science and research. i know some of this may sound familiar to you. we talked a lot about this during the campaign. this should not be a surprise to anybody.
such action would be completely unacceptable and a clear breach of international law. >> reporter: the move comes amidst u.s. concerns that the assad repeople may be cooking up recipes, mixing materials for chemicals. that possible preparation is taking place at more than one chemical plant in syria, officials say. u.s. intelligence shows nothing has been moved out of the facilities, however. and officials say there is no indication syria is on the verge of using chemical we papoweapon. in turkey monday, russian president putin called the deploy ment of the patriot missiles unnecessary. but tuesday, the russian foreign minister said any use of chemical weapons has grave implications. while down playing reports about syria. >> translator: we can call them rumors, but the syrian authorities are moving a stockpile of chemical weapons or that they want to use them. as soon as we hear such messages, we prepare. >> reporter: secretary of state hillary clinton spent the day meeting with her fellow ministers as they approved a plan to provide turkey with the missiles. nato says the number of missil
that are coming at us is social security and medicare and the new health care law. >> reporter: now house democratic leader nancy pelosi is calling the speakers to bring the tax to the floor by tuesday or she will try to force a vote. boehner is not likely to buckle under pressure so it seems like a standoff. >> gregg: sfuaf. what a surprise? they want to resolve this fiscal crisis or lack in his real compromise. john boehner is leading an attack on the lack of progress. >> there is a stalemate. let's not kid ourselves. it was not a serious proposal. so right now we're almost nowhere. >> gregg: almost nowhere. how about that? staff writer for roll call joins us live. the president promised a balanced plan, a balanced approach. he must have said eight thousand times. then he finally puts out his offer, it's a plan that doubled the tax hikes that he campaigned on and it adds about $150 billion more, not less to the deficit in and new spending. to republicans with that kind of equivalent of lucy and the football and they are laying flat on their backs? >> republicans scoffed at this first fo
the earlier pretrial containment was against the law. >>> the 17-year-old accused of killing 10-year-old neighbor jessica ridgeway will be charged as an adult. police say he turned himself in an confessed to murder two weeks after the girl's remains were found in colorado. >>> a woman accused of stalking alec baldwin rearrested. the attorney filed a question to withdraw from her case saying she wouldn't follow his advice or pay his legal fees. jenna: time is running out to get your ticket. the powerball lottery holding their drawing for the record breaking $500 million jackpot. certainly for folks hit by superstorm sandy that money would go a long way towards recovery. rick leventhal is live from pop's wines and liquors in island park, new york, one of the areas affected by this storm. rick? >> reporter: this storm store was actually shut down a couple days after hurricane sandy and lost its lottery machine. didn't get a new one until last friday. we may have found one of the few stores in this region without a line. no waiting if you want to come to -- there is one gentleman buying
years old, the healthcare law will unfairly stick you with higher premiums. dennis, how is that younger people in this age group are hit harder, or higher premiums? >> so obamacare has new rules going in in 2014, and actturarial firm studied, this and the young will bear a bigger burden of the cost increases. 18 to 24 years old, your premium costs could go up 45% in 2014. 25-29, your premium could go up 35% more. if you're 50, your costs will fall 5%. over 60, down 13%. the elderly healthcare costs are five times to six times as high as a cost for a 20-year-old, yet we're giving them price breaks -- i say them, me -- charging more to younger people, yet older people earn far more. >> greta: if i was 18 or 19 years old, i wish, why in the world would i buy healthcare? because i can pay the penalty of about $700, and should i get sick i can always go out and buy insurance because i can get it for a pre-existing problem. >> exactly. >> greta: and if i don't buy into that pool, that reduces the entire pool to keep the cost down for everybody. >> bingo. where he need the young involved in th
-out of it. >> guaranteed up front measurable savings scored by sea enacted into law. the only guarantee is when congress enacts policies. >> you would be willing to go for specific things and guarantee that there would be a specific amount of cuts? >> of course, of course. >> but that's next year? >> no, that's not true. we're prepared to do up front alongside a deal that includes raising rates. we are prepared to do a meaningful amount of savings on the spending side. not just to avoid the damage of the sequester, but to help reduce the long-term deficits. >> you want them -- you want them to come forward for the cuts. >> in general we've laid out a detailed plan. we would be happy to look at an alternative plan, but they have to lay that out for us. both on the revenue and rates side. also on the spending side. that's just a reasonable way. we can't sit here and try to figure out what works for them. they have to tell us what works for them. let's go to what's at stake in this context. this is something we can do. i think we're going to get there. there's too much at stake not to get
for modernization in our visa laws. >> the democrats had two years to do something about immigration reform. they had a white house, they had the house, nay had the senate and they did nothing about immigration reform. >> joining us is xavier becerra from california. great to have you with us tonight. you just heard mr. cantor say this is a step forward. do you agree with that? >> only for the tea party, perhaps, because we have a chance to do real sensible immigration reform working together on a bipartisan basis. republicans never reached out to democrats. they knew this was an inferior bill. it pits immigrants against each other. it hurts families who are of african ancestry who want to bring family members the right way from africa and they do it to no real benefit to the american people because america workers might be disadvantaged because there are no protections for american workers to make sure that these newly-authorized green cards for the educated workers, which we do need, that those pay for those folks isn't undercutting the salaries current workers get. >> so it creates as ma
would have to overturn the veto. they want to take this and make it law for all of time. ditch spending cuts part but the rest of it is pretty much the same. the effect would be to finish off the debt ceiling forever. make it no long ear threat to the economy. the president could raise the debt ceiling and congress frankly couldn't do much about it. republicans are laughing this part of his opening bid off as a ridiculous pie in the sky proposal. mcconnell for instance who abandoned it long ago because republicans hated it the second he proposed it, he is totally against it now. but it is actually a great idea. one that could do more to protect our economy in the future than anything else in the debt deal. even better, it would cost us nothing. it is perhaps the single best idea in american politics today. the debt ceiling is an anachronism, an accountability idea from when congress didn't involve itself much in federal budgeting. today congress has fuel control of the budget. there isn't accountability op a run away executive any more. it is calling into question whether congress will
's a second option. right now conditioning can pass a law that would prevent a tax hike on first $250,000 of everybody's income, everybody. so that means 98% of americans, 97% of small businesses, wouldn't see their income taxes go up by a single dime because 98% of americans make $250,000 a or less. 97% of small businesses make year or less so if you say income taxes don't go up for any income above $250,000, the vast majority of americans, they don't see a tax hike. but here's the thing, even the top 2%,even folks who make more than $250,000, they'd still keep their tax cut on first $250,000 of income so it would still be for the for them, too, to get that done. families would have a sense of security going into the new year. companies like this one would know what to expect in terms of planning for next year and the year after. that means people's jobs would be secure. the sooner congress gets this done, the sooner our economy would get a boost and it would then give us in washington more time to work together on that longrange plan to bring down deficits in a balanced way. tax ref
policy it is hard to give in until we're in a position where it's already de facto law. negotiating over what provisionally or aspirationally might happen is really hard for negotiators. it's why we see negotiations in business break down and go into strikes and lockouts all the time. my favorite nhl is in that situation right now. stooimts sometimes you have to get there. >> i actually think that the president and the white house really don't want to see that happen. not just because of the political posturing but because there are real consequences for americans. the white house started talking about that at the beginning of the week. i mean, a lot of americans, the way they can afford christmas is they take out a loan to buy christmas presents against what they think they're going to get back from their taxes. they get their tax return, and that's what that money back, that's what they repay their loan. if that's how you're living your life and you're watching what's going on in washington, you have a lot of anxiety. and also for businesses, i mean for business cycles, particularly gi

pages were signed into law. (laughter) the courts have since repeatedly upheld that clay's audio has the most far out selection of 8-tracks in town. but in 1975, this rule was changed so that a senator didn't have to actually speak, merely state his intention of launching a filibuster. a technique made famous in the classic movie "mr. smith goes to washington and expresses his intention to late dore something." (laughter) now, harry reid's doing this because he claims republicans are abusing the filibuster. >> i have faced 386 filibusters. >> stephen: 386 filibusters during harry reid's six years as majority leader. and given how little congress works, some of that has to be mitch mcconnell stopping by harry reid's family dinner to block passage of the mashed potato. (laughter) but i say so what? that's just politics. and mitch mcconnell is warning it could get worse. >> if the majority chooses to end the filibuster, if they choose to change the rules and put an end to democratic debate then the fighting, the bitterness, and the gridlock will only get worse. in the name of efficiency
to a greater extent than existed before. we have greater cooperation and coordination among all levels of law enforcement. there's a greater level of respect among the private sector parts and the public sector. but cybersecurity remains, in my judgment, the lagging indicator and the lagging response. i would hope -- i would hope that partisanship be thrown aside. i would hope that fear of the government -- although i understand that well and i have been a proponent of that of an oversized government and overly strong government, but fear of that will be tempered in the sense that we understand the threat to all of us, our standard of living in so many different ways is real and that we right now have the greatest minds working on cyber. last thought is this. if any young person is looking for a job or a career for the rest of his or her life, start training in cybersecurity. we need to do more in terms of educational program. we need to do more of training. china is training a lot more people in cybersecurity than we are. it's not because they have a larger population. it's because they're d

with at least $50 billion in the first year an increase in the debt limit that would change the law for congressional approval. we'll show you more but let's hear from you. duluth, minnesota. hello. caller: good morning. thanks for taking my call. my comment is about the fiscal cliff and social security, i don't really think that social security has really ever been a cause of the deficit. there's more funds coming in than there is funds being sent out in checks. and this whole security tax is a separate tax from the federal tax. and -- host: so this proposal includes the extension of the payroll tax cut. what do you think of that proposal? >> i think that's fine. i think extending the payroll tax is probably something we're going to have to look at doing. but when they start talking about using social security money, that botters me, because social security is never needed -- has never needed federal dollars before to fund the program. host: ok. off of twitter this is reding who says they have not offered a deficit reduction plan. republican big pledges tax reform and closing uns
to be cleared by both houses of parliament before it becomes the law of the land. as of now, all our political sources seem to indicate that the government is safe when it comes to the numbers in the lower house of parliament, but it's looking uncertain and shaky when it comes to the register but for the upper house of parliament. most political parties who are in opposition have stridently opposed retail saying it will kill the small retailer in india, it's going to be aunt consum -- anti-consumer, the government feels it will actually create jobs, will bring in technology, will create infrastructure in the supply chain so currently a debate of we are expecting the lower parts of parliament to take a vote on this matter about 7:00 p.m. india time. it seems like it will go through the low herb house, but the big question mark is on the upper house of parliament and that is where the arithmetic doesn't seem to be working in favor of government. foreign investors are going to be watching this very closely because if this is turned back, if there is a u-turn on this poll circumstance it means tha
